Jackson & Wilson, Inc.

Firm Overview

It's important for you to know that we represent people, not big corporations and insurance companies. Our daily focus involves protecting the injured, the wronged, and the voiceless, not large businesses that routinely trample, abuse, and exploit the rights of the less fortunate. The drive and motivation devoted to leveling the playing field for our clients and their families against the self-serving goals of corporate greed and higher profits is what has kept this law firm going strong for the past two decades.

When it comes to protecting individual rights, we provide a very personal service to people and families experiencing catastrophic injury and wrongful death. We make sure victims of civil wrongs are fully compensated while at the same time, holding all wrongdoers accountable for their actions.

Business clients benefit from our extensive experience involving business formation, business litigation, and legal consulting services. Our business clients' enjoy the fact that as trial lawyers, we use our extensive "inside" the courtroom experience to help keep their legal business issues and disputes from ever entering the courthouse doors.

The bottom line is that we always want to make sure that every person and family we help gets 100% of our undivided attention and effort.

Example cases

Over the past two decades, it has been a privilege to help our clients with their legal matters. Chances are, we can help you too!

Here are several cases you may find interesting.

[$1,000,000] Three young children who lost their parents - We were retained to represent three young children who had lost both of their parents in an automobile accident. The van they were in spun out of control and was hit by a large truck. The trucking company and its insurance company originally denied responsibility for the loss. After we became involved, filed a Superior Court lawsuit and pushed the case to trial, we were eventually able to settle the case for $1,000,000 shortly before trial. The settlement funds were placed in to annuities providing the children with a substantial monthly income for the next 20 to 30 years. Food, shelter, clothing and a good education are now available to our three young clients. Of note is the fact that this settlement was obtained after the other side originally denied the claim.

[$3,347,000] A young man who sustained serious injuries and head trauma - Our young client was involved in a head-on collision. Two trucks had been racing and struck our client's vehicle. The two responsible drivers were inadequately insured and our client's own insurance company refused to pay his $30,000 underinsured motorist coverage limits. We demanded arbitration with the insurance company and ultimately received an arbitration award of $865,000. We then filed a first party bad faith lawsuit against our client's own insurance company and during a mediation prior to trial, settled the bad faith case for an additional $2,500,000. The same insurance company which refused to pay our client $30,000 eventually paid a total of $3,347,000. Of note is the fact that this settlement was obtained only after our client's own insurance company originally denied paying the small $30,000 claim.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

We wanted to help people and families who have been harmed by another person's wrongful or illegal conduct. It feels good to "protect the little guy" against powerful insurance companies and big corporate America.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

Companies such as Nolo provide excellent tools to assist the legal consumer with understanding their legal rights. The more informed the consumer is, the better he or she will understand the true nature and extent of their "legal challenge." We've also found that an informed client can be an invaluable asset to successfully litigating a personal injury or wrongful death case.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

It is always a privilege to assist clients any way we can. The time we take to review documents not only helps the client, but it helps us bond and develop a long-term relationship with that client leading to a mutually beneficial win-win relationship.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

Each year we help dozens of clients who desire to represent themselves. In the same way that a brain surgeon would not try to walk someone over the telephone through a complicated surgical procedure, we too are careful about providing a client with needed resources and confidence. It's important to make sure that a client's legal interest is truly protected. The level of our involvement normally comes down to a balancing of interest which of course varies from case to case.
